Our trip starts from S. Maria Novella train station where you will meet our tour leader who will accompany you through this amazing day in Venice.

Once in Venice enjoy an orientation walk through the labyrinth of alleyways towards Rialto bridge and Grand Canal. Learn the history of this enchanting city and discover the extraordinary architectural masterpieces strolling along the narrow streets, called Calle.
We will stop to admire an infinity variety of beautiful and fancy masks artfully decorated with feathers, glitter, stones and bells. It may takes days for maskmakers to decorate a traditional carnival mask and somethimes they can cost hundreds euros. Don't worry as in some popular stalls it’s easy to find something alike, for half the price so make sure you buy your own.

The orientation ​tour​ will end in St. Mark's Square where fantastic costumes are displayed and “The Best Masked Costume Contest” takes place every day. Here you will have plenty of opportunity for amazing pictures. You will be then free to ​continue exploring the city and its costume parades and​ enjoy the live music in the main square of the city​. ​
